Their are two books I am currently looking at purchasing.

One is the one that contains all their hits that are on the Mothership Album:

the other is the Tab book that contains all songs off their first 5 albums:

Any suggestions at which to get?

The Mothership one if probably a better deal, but if you plan on playing anything that isn't one of their big hits, then I'd go with the I-V set.

Um... just use guitar tabs. For free. Good tabs work just fine, you realize that tab books are no different right? It's not as if Jimmy Page is personally transcribing the songs and putting them into the books.

You know we have free tabs here, right? Just because they're in a book doesn't mean they're automatically going to be accurate.
You're*

Mine had the sheet music too, which is much more helpful than just the tabs, assuming you can read it.


And whaich one do you have?

I do prefer reading with sheet music, regular tabs are not as easy for me to understand

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Led-Zeppelin-Complete-Intermediate-Guitar/Led-Zeppelin/e/9780897243889that one, but it's missing some of the solos. I'd head to Barnes and Noble or Borders and see if they have any of the ones you were looking at, and if they come with sheet music. It seems like the I-V is the most recommended led zep tab book, so I'd say that is better than mine

Hmm... This is a Guitar Tab website...For free...


hahaha i know! the irony!

this place (since i pretty much know every Zep song - studio and live) has some excellent tabs (multi-guitar etc)
most tab books are not official - therefore they purposely have to make mistakes or show you to play it in a different way to Page - which also sounds different!
It is a bad choice to buy books like that.

A good example is Communication Breakdown
The CORRECT way of playing it is the open E to the D and A chords at the fifth fret - NOT the D shape at the 2nd fret!! Also to not barre chords (as Page did not do this) - i like to do it that way as it is more authentic and suits my playing better, it also provides the thumb over the top to mute or hit the bottom E. (small potatoes i know )

Andrew Stockdale played it the wrong way at those awards (the less said about that performance, the better) but it did sound slightly different.

Im just some Zep nut and know all the little things like Whole Lotta Led does around here.

I would go with the learn it by ear route. It will seem frustrating at first but it will help you in the long run.
Sig What?
